Dark times for Danny

 Dark times for Danny

Danny Swanson has admitted how his frustrations at being unable to play due to injury have left him recently in such an unsociable mood.

A succession of nagging problems have kept the luckless 23-year-old sidelined for virtually the entire campaign so far, which has in turn found him really struggling to cope with his long and enforced absence.

"I've been in a terrible mood lately and I think I've fallen out with everyone," he told the Daily Record. "My dad usually phones me every day for a blether but he knows I'm injured and how crabbit I'm going to be so he doesn't even bother.

"That's basically how bad things have become," continued Swanson. "I've fallen out with my pals and the boys here at Tannadice because I'm just so frustrated at not being able to play. Playing is the be-all and end-all as far as I'm concerned and that's when I'm most happy."

Nevertheless he was remaining grateful for the support of his playing colleagues during his dark time.

"Although I've been falling out with them, the lads have been great. Jon Daly, our captain, is always asking me how I am, like any good skipper would," he added.

"And Craig Conway was injured recently so he's been a big help in telling me just to stay positive and focused."
